What kind of bozo can't figure this out? If they're trying to screw you over, you don't have to go there, go somewhere else. How long have you been in China? There is no foreigner price, Chinese are just racist and will try to charge foreigners more. The proper response to those types of people is the finger and walk away.

2,000 RMB a year for an average gym is the going rate.

 

Maybe more in a rich area of a first tier city.

 

If you're paying over 4,000 a year then the place would have to be pretty nice.

 

They gain face for having a handsome foreigner attending their gym. I managed to pay less than my Chinese friends because I told them I was shopping around and there were two other gyms that I was looking at and they were giving me discounts.

 

As with any sort of bargaining with Chinese you must seem disinterested. Show them the money and walk away, they hate that.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
